Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told." favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 58 reviews )

A hilariously inept poverty row western starring Jack Perrin. The plot and dialog are worse than comic-book juvenile. The acting wouldn't pass muster for the cast of a middle school play. The fistfights are more like friendly wrestling matches. This one is a real laugher, but to be fair some of the continunity gaffs might be the result of the botched TV edit.

A stick figure fictional biography of Joseph Goebbels, the infamous reich minister for propaganda 1933-45. Little attempt is made to expose the real horrors of Nazism or Goebbels' hate-driven personality. Instead it's more likely to induce giggles thanks to Wolfgang Zilzer's ham-fisted performance in the title role, which portrays Goebbles as little worse than a liar and vindictive rejected lover who abuses power. A romantic subplot only indirectly related to Goebbles takes up almost 1/3 of the...
